Challenging classes and blah blah blah blah, but there are hardly any windows in this freaking school! Who the heck designed this thing!? It is not that hard to imagine that humans don't like to be stuck inside all day, day after day with no natural sunlight. Whoever built the MIHS building needs to rethink their career choice!

McDowell is an amazing school. I am currently a student attending this school and all the teachers and administrators are very kind and willing to help students learn the material even if it's during after school tutoring or their own lesson planning block.
